"Jj Rousseau: Terracotta Modello For Opera Garnier Bust, 19th Century"
Beautiful find, in the region of Avignon, where lived the sculptor Adolphe Itasse, born February 18, 1829 in Lourmarin (Vaucluse) and died March 13, 1893 in Hyères (Var). It is a face study of the famous Swiss philosopher and artist Jean Jacques Rousseau, the latest state model, made of terracotta for the stone bust commissioned by the architect Garnier and which appears at the Paris Opera on the west facade. Dimensions: 50cm x 25cm x 25cm. Studio piece, unique piece, by the hand of the artist, which he signed, it was hastily fashioned from an order of 7 different busts to be delivered in a short time , and built this one by small superimposed clay balls (see the photo of the interior), which explains the oven cracks that can be seen on the surface on this project. Also see the period photo of the bust. (Belongs to a collection of architectural photographs, sculptures, decorative elements taken during the construction site of the Opéra Garnier and given to the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts by Charles Garnier)
Condition: Fairly good, BUT: fire cracks filled, various small gaps, including curls in the wig. Take a good look at the photos ....
